Strengthening North Dakota’s Humanities Infrastructure

The retraining and hiring of eight humanities instructors and librarians to build digital collections and design teaching resources relating to regional and global history. 

Funds from this project will enable the retraining and rehiring of humanities instructors/staff directly impacted by the financial repercussions of the pandemic. As Digital Humanities Specialists, these contingent faculty will restore functionality to out-of-date websites, as well as expand digital collections for historical and educational purposes, specifically the papers of the infamous Senator William "Wild Bill" Langer, government documents related to Indigenous Nations of the Upper Plains, selections from the Nuremberg trial transcripts, and a large bygdebøker collection. They will also facilitate the creation of freely available teaching resources for grades 6-12, in line with the NEH’s special initiative to help create “a more perfect union.”
